Is it a date with the devil?

Diablo 4 has April 2023 release date, claims rumour

Diablo 4 has a release date of April 2023, that’s at least according to a recent rumour collaborated by multiple sources.

Announced during BlizzCon 2019, it’s been a patient wait for fans of the latest instalment of the iconic multiplayer, RPG series from Activision Blizzard. However, the Diablo 4 release date might just be around the corner.

However, while we must take all rumours with a pinch of salt, the fresh speculation does make sense.

Development initially began in 2014

For starters, the forthcoming RPG had already been in development for a number of years. It is believed that Diablo 4 initially began its development in 2014 under the codename “Hades”. 

However, project Hades was cancelled in 2016. At that time, Team 3 began work on a new version of Diablo 4, now with a new codename of “Project Fenris”.

Furthermore, a closed beta for Diablo 4 has been or is currently taking place at this time, which has consequently led to leaked gameplay footage. So, if rumours are true, and Activision’s highly anticipated RPG is releasing five months from now, it certainly seems likely.

Could a Diablo 4 release date be revealed next month?

What’s more, with The Game Awards fast approaching on December 8th, gossip suggests that the Diablo 4 release date may be announced at the awards ceremony hosted by Geoff Keighley.

In related news, back in August 2022, the character customisation as well as the loot system leaked thanks to a closed alpha test.
